TA Fisher, established in 1895 and based in Reading, Berkshire, is just celebrating great success at the popular Equniox Place development in Farnborough, Hampshire. John Fisher (Managing Director) describes Equinox Place as being what TA Fisher stands for, “A first class development in terms of design layout specification and of no lesser importance, ‘standard of finish!’ I’m very proud of what we have achieved”.
The development of just 24 high specification apartments with generous private outdoor space, landscaped communal areas and secure semi basement parking, is a stone’s throw from Farnborough main line station (Waterloo in 38 minutes) and a mile away from J4 of the M3 motorway.
Jon Lacey, Branch Manager of Mackenzie Smith was appointed sole agent for the development and has been personally involved with the sale of the apartments from the beginning. “TA Fisher adopts a different approach to sales and marketing. I was not encouraged to talk to purchasers until the completion of a show unit. TA Fisher place a great deal of importance on build quality, specification and customer service and from many years of experience in this field felt it was important to enable purchasers to fully appreciate the quality of the development”.
This has proven to be the case as all the apartments are either sold or let.
However, as Jon explained “investors can still participate in this scheme by purchasing an investment apartment. With rental levels running at £1,300 – £2,000 a month, depending on the type of let, these apartments represent an attractive opportunity for investors to invest in a development that will retain its quality over the long term. The typical returns for investors are currently 6 – 8%. There is choice on the type of investment as well, as investors can either purchase a House of Fisher serviced apartment with a fixed and guaranteed return, or an apartment with a tenancy in place and tenant in residence. This latter option removes the concerns over void periods during the first few months of ownership”.
Equinox Place not only offers an opportunity for investment but also to purchase an apartment for private residency. Every apartment is finished to an exceptionally high standard to include two double bedrooms and both the bathroom and the en suite shower rooms have been fitted with contemporary classic white suites. Each kitchen has been individually designed with a range of high quality wall and base units and equipped with a range of built in appliances. Modern technology allows for each apartment to have its own air filtration system and apartments on the top three floors benefit from solar powered hot water.
Farnborough is currently undergoing an £80m regeneration initiative and the area continues to develop and grow. By choosing one of these contemporary and stylish apartments located in an area of growth with excellent commuter links, you are investing in an individual property in an area that will continue to expand and develop over the next decade.
There are only a limited number of apartments remaining.
